Peel and St. George's favourites for Railway Cup Final

It's Cu Plas Railway Cup semi-final Saturday in Football.

Premier League title contenders Peel and St. George's are favourites to make the showdown at The Bowl on Sunday 28th December.

Holders St. George's have a home tie against the surprise last four side Ramsey at Glencrutchery Road.

The northerners have made the top four competition for the first time in over 30 years with a young and vibrant team.

Geordies are looking to win the Railway Cup for a fifth straight season.

Not far away at Blackberry Lane, Old Boys tackle Peel.

Old Boys have suffered a dip in form of late with three defeats to St. George's, Peel and Laxey scoring just one goal in those matches.

Peel have been in superb form since an opening day draw at St. John's and are the only unbeaten team in the top flight and in Manx Football this campaign.

One note of caution for the favourites - the semi-finals of the Railway Cup usually produce at least one surprise result.
